MRAP vehicles usually have 'V' shaped hulls to deflect away any explosive forces originating below the vehicle, thereby protecting the vehicle and its passenger compartment. Typically these explosions are from land mines, but they can also be IEDs. As a result of combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq (Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom) a need was identified for a series of vehicles designed to survive the explosive threats posed by the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) as well as conventional mining and ambush tactics employed against Coalition personnel. These vehicles were collectively described as MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) capable, and would be specifically built to defeat these threats. One such vehicle is the Cougar. Manufactured by Force Protection Inc., the Cougar has been in production, and in service since 2004.
While new to the US military, vehicles such as the Cougar are not new designs. The Cougar design can trace its origins to the Olifant Manufacturing Company of South Africa, which originally developed the multi-wheeled, 'V' shaped blast hull design for use by the South African military in its operations against Angola and Namibia in the 1980s. These vehicles were designed to have good road speeds and endurance (to allow for the long distances traveled, as well as reduced maintenance requirements because of their wheeled design) and were specifically designed to maximize passenger survivability against small arms ambushes and conventionally laid mines.
In addition to the H model cougar, FMI also builds the HE combined mission variant of the Cougar, as well as the Buffalo, a dedicated EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) support vehicle.
The M1114 is the latest Enhanced Capacity Vehicle (ECV) version of the US Army's AM General High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) fitted with a passive up-armouring package developed by the O'Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt Armoring Company.
Some 1,700 M1114 vehicles have so far been built for the home and export markets with production scheduled to continue for some years.
